    "PERFECT Backup Software!"

    May 12, 2011  |   By AMDeeb

    Pros

    Easy to create a Backup image

    Cons

    1- No automatic backup
    2- Since developers stopped the project,no special support for Windows7

    Summary

    I had to get a Windows 7 license to install Windows on my MacBook.

    The license that I brought has activation restriction. I was worried about reactivating it when I travel to another country for Masters Degree incase of software/hardware upgrade or problem.
    My Friend suggested me to use WinClone to completely clone the BootCamp partition.

    Yesterday, I had a problem with BootCamp partition, so I had to restore the BootCamp restore image created 3 days ago.

    It needed about 3 hours to restore 70GB using the default settings.

    When restore was complete, i restarted my mac, and entered BootCamp partition.
    The startup was slow, and the startup screen changed to Windows VISTA's loading bar.

    I tried to repaire the startup using Windows 7 Disk. It didn't work.

    I searched on the net for a solution and I found one.

    So for those who have Windows 7 installed on BootCamp, and faces this issue. Try this:

    1- Open Command Prompt as an Administrator.
    2- Type this: bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US
    3- Press Enter
    4- Restart Windows
    5- VOILA!
